complete shade structures, greenhouse packages, frames, coverings, heating/cooling
systems, to replacement items.
Shade Structures – – We distribute Poly-Tex shade structures. They are available in 20’ X
20’ blocks and are 10’ high. They have 2-1/2”-diameter X 12-gauge vertical posts, and the
shade cloth panels are available in shade factors from 30% to 90%.

The structures come with manual roll-up sidewall vents and hardware for framing in the
endwalls. Contact us for pricing.

with widths ranging from 14’ up to 30’. Poly-Tex offers Poly-Vent sidewall venting which is an
option to roll-up sides. The Poly-Vent opens from the top down and can be opened partially.
The Wiggle Wire poly fastening system is used to secure poly film or shade cloth.
Backyard Greenhouses Poly-Tex has several inexpensive models for backyard applications
which are available in widths of 6’ and 8’. The lengths start at 6’ and go up to 20’.
